Despite Any Imperfections This One's A Must. Apply Your EQ., Season To Taste. Add Some Brightness To Phil's Bass. Lock In To His Playing And Hear Him Lead The Band In Never Before Explored Territory. Jerry's Pulled Into Some Maelstroms And Vortexes That Are Truly Unique. Before And After The Monster "Playin" To Begin The Second Set. In Casey Jones Phil Rally's The Troops With A Walking Bass Line That You Could March A Band To. Then After The Improvisational Set Opener We Build In Intensity Till In Big River We Literally Boil Out Of The Banks. And Then Dark Star..... (Lock Your Ears Into Phil. The Others Will Follow) ....A 5 Because It's There.

I can't stop for nothing..
If you want to take in this entire show from start to finish then this source is your best bet.
BUT use the other source COTSMAN
to go from Jack Straw to the end of the show
at least once to glimpse the possibilities of this show being restored to its full glory.
This seems to resolve some of the muffled issues before Jack Straw but not all of them.
Bird Song beyond 10 minutes of psycedelic exploration.
There is a Box of Rain at the end of the RIDER starts at Track # 9 @ 5:17 = BOX
then Track #10 = BOX
Weir really tears into Around, Around..(Great version)
Playing in the Band is super cool.
Great that it opens Second Set.
(Very listenable yet how do i get the cotton balls
out of my ears syndrome at times)
3 for sound/ 5 for performance

Wow, I wish some of these soundboards were availiable to download! First time I hear a Dark Star segueing into Me & Bobby Mgee (Janis Joplin & Kris Kristofferson would be proud)

have to admit it's getting better
This is another great Texas show from 72. Maybe not the best (and maybe the least of them all) but ... still great. Nobody's slouching (this is 72 after all) but Jerry really picks up steam towards the end of the first set and keeps on delivering the goods. Rock and roll.
There's a great jazzy Playin' with Keith all over the keys to begin the second set and a very fine Dark Star with a tasteful Phil solo and minimum darkness.
This is a stand alone GDTRFB without any Bid You Goodnite outro. It's a barn burner and arguably the high point of a great show (did I mention this is a great show? ... yes, I see that I did several times already!).
The sound quality is not excellent, due to the noise/level reduction artefacts commented upon in the Notes. But it's perfectly listenable. Give it a whirl and look forward to the unearthing of the master tapes at some point.

Everything from the fall of 1972 is a priceless treasure as far as I am concerned. You upgraded the sound on this one DRAMATICALLY. What great work. Thank you.
I always thought this was a hot show, but the poor fidelity was always too much of a distraction to really want to play it except very occasionally.
The improved sound makes this one not just "turn the corner" but sprint around it. It now has a honored place in the shows from Fall of 72 that I play regularly, which happens to be pretty much the most honored place in my collection.
I hope you do get the master cassette because you are working wonders.
People -- Listen to this one. This show has exemplary versions of Dark Star and GDTRFB. Actually, the whole show is one giant 72 inferno.
